Does timber offer a construction method that provides tangible benefits to make it a system of choice for the construction sector?
In November the UK hosted the 26th UN Climate Conference (COP26). STEICO supports the 'Beyond Zero Homes Initiative' which will demonstrate the possibilities of zero carbon building.
See how the natural wood fibre insulation from STEICO stores carbon within the fabric of the Zero Carbon House, developed by Beyond Zero Homes at COP26.
The timber frame COP26 House showcases zero carbon, circular solutions in building, and living, using standard materials and skills available today. The house uses a range of STEICO wood fibre insulations in order to achieve its goals
The COP26 house was completed just in time for the start of the World Climate Conference - the prime example of climate-neutral building.
Thanks to STEICO insulation materials, this building has a particularly high energy efficiency and protects against cold in winter as well as heat in summer.
The right thermal insulation is the most important measure for low heating energy requirements. The flexible wood fibre insulation mat STEICOflex 036 has the best insulation performance λ value (0.036) of all natural insulation materials.
